I didn't get to post to this thread last year. Why, do you ask? Because I was still in nicotine bondage.
This year is dramatically different, because not only did I quit smoking nicotine, but I chose to quit ingesting it in any way, shape, or form. Why spend more money to quit something that costs me so much money already? It just didn't make sense.
I went cold turkey on January 3rd, 2005 (No New Year's resolutions for me, thank YOU very much!). I have never, EVER regretted it. You too, can be a free person. If you quit (and you DEFINITELY don't have to wait for New Year's Day!), you will never have to worry about where to smoke, when you can smoke, if you have a source of fire, if you have a source of nicotine, if people can smell you, how long to your next fix...You get the idea. JUST DO IT. It will only be as difficult as you decide it will be.
